Posted by b1g_dav3 on 13 October 2014 - 05:53 PM

LED headlights?

 

Are there decent aftermarket kits available yet?

These are the 2 kits I've seen which look pretty decent.

Easy to fit, looks really good when they're on, I had one on my Fiesta and it made the front end look completely different.

I have 17 of them wired in series. Mad power gains, when I go driving, the Earth's speed can actually be measured to slow down, or speed up depending on my direction.

I just had an unmarked BMW up my rear on the motorway for 15 miles, I feel I should upload the rear cam footage to YouTube or something >_>

Think the Corsa's have about 20bhp on the Fiesta's. Pieces of junk >_>

Part 6 is out as well, another 40 minuter. Not sure if we're going to see part 7 until Monday though.

The bike was bought through work with interest free credit, so in total I saved 55 per cent total :-P

I'd go for LED's over HID's, HID's will probably fizzle out before too long trend wise. HID's are decent though, had them in my cars for years.

10bhp you're probably not going to notice really. For 10bhp, keep the warranty and save the money towards a stage 2 kit or something.

#386785 Wind Deflectors Added

Posted by b1g_dav3 on 16 July 2014 - 10:46 PM

I like my deflectors, handy when rainy for demisting, plus I often like to have the windows open a little anyway unless on motorways, makes it handy if raining.

Was a cooler master, it just about provided enough power and is a few years old so it's no wonder :P

Sorry hun but your claims are massively exaggerated. Miltek zorsts are poor and overpriced I'd take a piper any day of the week. Marketing does wonders for Miltek. As for racing an astra vxr it was broken or not trying. No NA 1.6 is beating a 240bhp car unless you've chucked 10's of g's at it. I call custard on those claims.

Miltek are actually pretty good, a lot of company's use them including some pretty big ones, I don't think they would if they were junk.

 

As for the 'pre-packs' as you put it, it's an easy entry for people to get decent figures from their car, without having to change internal components, bolt-on's are quite good in this respect. Don't forget for most people they're road going cars and occasional track toys, and they want to buy the packages to make their car what they want. Yes, you can go forged internals and such, but do you need to for a bit more fun? Plus a lot of people don't have the confidence in changing all that in their car, or the money. There's a lot of work in it.

 

Does it really matter what people do and how far they go, as long as they enjoy their car? >_>
